What should GPLv3 do about MS and Novell?

coriordan writes "The problem to be considered is: what if company A distributes some
GPL'd software, and company B announces that they will not sue
customers of company A. This creates a situation where some
users are safe from patent litigation, and some are in danger - and
company A now has an interest in sustaining or maximising that danger."
